KofColors Workspace Make-Over

 How embarrassing!!

I should be ashamed of the mess that is displayed in these photos. But sadly this has been my workspace for the last two years. And even though I have made some small changes and added bits of charm.

Carpinteria Farmer's Market

It was the first Thursday, in a long time,  that we were able to make the Carpinteria Farmer's Market. It was a beautiful, warm summer afternoon and a great time to walk around and sample some fruit.

Hello, my name is Amanda and I am a book hoarder. 

No joke. If there was more time in the day I would spend at least three hours reading. Stacks of books sit on my bedside table, my request list for the library is at least three books long...

Baseball Bookend

My dad loves baseball. Childhood memories are filled with being at the baseball field watching my brother, going to Seattle Mariner games in Seattle, and in the summer if I wanted to see my dad...I could find him at the field mowing the green.

Lineman Insulator Decor

 Living with a lineman, he seems to come home from work with treasures. 

Glass treasures, that come in all shapes,sizes and colors. Some are huge, some are broken, others gorgeous colors and most are clear or green. 

With a garage full of insulators and lots of ideas online on how to use them as decor in the house. I thought I would share some of my creations. 

Some of these insulators are really rare and are worth a lot of money.

My New 1950s Hoosier Cabinet

My last blog post was in June. WOW! Time sure does fly by when you are having fun. It has been a busy month and I have completed so many I just have to find the time to blog.                           But it is so difficult when the weather has been so beautiful outside. The beach, my bike, flowers and my dogs have been just calling me outside. Let's just say that my nose is sun-kissed, I've read more books in a month than last year combined and I have only killed my mint plants once *big improvement on my green thumb.
